Description

Slides 474 through 477 were not originally captioned. Based on visual evidence and their placement in the collection sequence, Dr. Grace is reasonable certain they depict Kokas, Papua (Indonesia). Dr. Grace's planned itinerary called for him to be in Jayapura (then known as Hollandia) on two separate occasions: From August 5 through 11, 1955, and again beginning October 3, 1955. He didn't ultimately arrive there for the second time until November 3, 1955. Between then and the first week of March, 1956, he was largely in Jayapura, with one trip to Fakfak and Sorong that he estimates took between two and three weeks.)
